Nice approach GMAT guru.. Still I went with formula approach. As GMAT guru explained it's a G.P(Geometric Progression), a=1/2, r=-1/2, n=10 Sum of First 10 terms= a (1-r^n)/(1-r) = 1/2(1-1/2^10)/(1-r)= 1/2*2/3(1-1/2^10) = 1/3(1-1/2^10). Since 1-1/2^10 is almost equal to 1 we can assume answer will b...

Hi Guru,

I have a doubt in your approach. What if numerator contains prime factors other than 2 and 5.
Ex: 121/11 --> 11 * 11/11. I know it wont be a fraction.

But if we get very large number. Such as:25937424601/121 .

Thanks in advance.
